Kingston Communications appoints new head of Media Solutions

Kingston Communications today announced the appointment of Julian Lowrie as head of media solutions for its Media Sales Team.

Lowrie brings with him a wealth of experience in the telecoms industry, with particular emphasis on premium rate and mass call event services. Prior to joining Kingston he held the position of Media Sales Director at Opera Interactive. During his eleven years in the industry Lowrie also spent seven years working for PNC Telecom before taking up the position of head of PRS sales at Your Communications (subsequently acquired by THUS).

Commenting on his appointment, Julian said, “Kingston Communications has the scale and resilience of a large network operator and the flexibility and market knowledge of a specialist solutions provider, a valuable combination in today’s climate. Through Myriad, Kingston’s mass interactive platform, we can handle the biggest call events and facilitate complex IVR functionality, integrated with SMS, MMS and web technologies. I am looking forward to using this strong industry offering to provide new opportunities for Kingston’s existing channel partners, and to introduce Kingston to a wider market.”

Iain Shearman, Kingston’s Partners sales director, added, “Julian’s track record and rich experience in the telecoms industry makes him the ideal candidate for this role and I am confident that his appointment will be to the mutual benefit of our partners and our business.”
